An Introduction to Golf Clubs - Sunday, August 31, 2014

By Hannah Birss

What is a golf club? The club is the apparatus used by the golfer to hit the ball. No club, no golf. Golf clubs come in a variety of different types and construction, though the three classes that these types can be divided into are woods, irons (considered the most versatile) and putters.

Each club is composed of two main parts; the shaft,with a lance for grip, and a club head. Based on the type and class, the shafts and club heads differ drastically for the respective purposes.

The first class of golf clubs is called woods; woods are the first club to be put into play on a golf course. Long distance clubs, they are meant to drive the ball a great distance down the fairway. As the name implies, woods were previously made of wood, specifically persimmon wood. Taylor-made introduced the first all-metal woods club in 1979; since then, wood is rarely used and today most are made with a graphite shaft and a titanium, composite or steel head.  Woods typically have a large head and long shaft made for maximum club speed, and although they are made specifically for longer distance, they are typically more difficult to control. These clubs can be further divided into two main categories; drivers and fairways. A driver is often the club used from the tee, and is the farthest hitting club. Fairways are often use immediately after the driver, on the second shot for tee, and are also used in long distance scenarios. Though I won't go into great detail there, there are many different makes and types of drivers and fairways, each with their pros and cons.

The second class of golf clubs is called irons. Irons were originally called that because, unlike woods, they have been made with iron for centuries. Irons are typically made with thin club heads with grooved faces; irons are used to play a shot from the first two hits after the tee until the ball reaches the green. While you can play an iron from the tee box, most of your iron shots will come from the fairway. Irons are then further classified by the divisions of short irons, long irons, and mid-irons, which are further divided into sub classes, based on the differentiated angle of loft on the clubface. Again, this article deals with the basic classifications of golf clubs and will not go into detail here.

Finally, we come to the putters. Putters are used to ‘putt' the ball onto the green. If you have ever played mini-golf, you've used a scaled-down version of a putter. Once the ball is on the green, a putter is used to make a concise and controlled shot in order to get the ball in the hole. A putter is short and straight-faced, allowing for the perfect shot.

As mentioned before, golf clubs come in many different shapes, sizes, and makes, each of them created specifically for a certain shot, with their own strengths and weaknesses. By making sure you have a variety of different clubs, you can be well on your way to becoming a golf-pro.

Golf Ball at a Glance : Titleist Pro V1 - Monday, May 19, 2014
Knetgolf’s Thursday, May 19, 2011 Golf Ball Profiles  
By Hannah Birss

What makes the Titleist Pro V1 absolutely the best golf ball on this planet?

The Pro V1 is one of the most successful golf balls ever produced. It utilizes large core, multi-component urethane Elastomer technology, as well as an innovative ZG process core technology to give you the greatest edge on your game. With a 354 tetrahedral dimple design, the Pro V1’s is tour proven with a higher ball speed and a low spin, allowing for longer drives and distances. It holds in windy conditions, and its tight ball flight, higher launch, and steep angle of descent provide excellent drop and stop performance to make your game the best it can be. It’s perfect for golfers with a wide range of launch conditions looking for that Tour-level performance. 

Don’t believe us? Let’s take a look at the history of one of the golf world’s most famous ball designs. 

The Pro V1 first made its debut on October 11, 2000 during the PGA Tour in Las Vegas the first week it became available. Billy Andrade, a long-time Titleist user, was the first to use the ball, winning the first tournament. Different from previous balls in the brand (Titleist previously used a wound-ball construction for their core), it quickly established itself as a dramatic departure from the traditional ball. When it became available to the public in December, it quickly rose in the ranks of the world’s best golf balls and is now one of the most used balls in the PGA Tour and has been used by some of the greatest names in golfing history, such as Tiger Woods, Steve Striker, and Kenny Perry to name a few. 

So why buy your Pro-V1’s from is the world’s largest internet retailer of used and recycled golf balls. Knetgolf .com offers golfers the ability to buy high quality pre-owned and recycled golf balls at incredibly low prices, quickly and efficiently through our easy-to-use golf ball search engine. The home of the half-price golf ball, we sell the very best balls for your very best game. 

Because of the amount of technology put in the ball and its exceptional soft feel, the Pro-V1’s are some of the priciest balls in the golf world. But don’t let the price tag scare you away; Knetgolf has got you covered. While the suggested retail price for the pro-v1s can be upwards of 50 dollars, 

For $22.99, you can get 1 dozen mint-grade recycled golf balls from, allowing you to purchase quality balls at quality prices so you can get your game on. Knetgolf also has phenomenal 5 dozen and 10 dozen specials, allowing for quality and quantity for low, low prices. 
So if you’re looking for the very best, don’t look far: Titleist, and Knetgolf, have got your back.
